The old tren prohormone products were very popular before the ingredient was classified as an illegal anabolic steroid. The ingredient Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione (tren xtreme, x-tren, etc) was actually a precursor to the compound Dienolone. The legislation didnt ban this active compound that the old tren products converted to because it wasnt on the market, so the guys at Antaeus Labs decided to release it. Dienolone has very poor oral bio-availability so they put it into a topical delivery system (similar to the prescription testosterone preparation androgel) that they call Trenazone (estra-4,9-dien-17b-ol-3-one).
It has an anabolic/androgenic ratio of 100/10 compared to methyltestosterone. This means it wont pose a very serious risk for hair loss or prostate issues in comparison to some of the other products on the market. This compound may pose more of a risk for those prone to gyno because it has a progesterone receptor affinity similar to that of nandrolone (deca), and because of its low androgenicity (high androgenic substances like DHT are our bodies natural defenses to estrogen and subsequently gyno).
Dosing of Trenazone
This compound is often stacked with methylated prohormones due to it adding minimal liver strain. Generally with Trenazone 1-1.5ml a day (75-112.5mg) is the most popular dosage, however experienced users with past pro-hormone or designer steroid experience can experiment with dosages in upwards of 2ml (150mg) per day.
Since this compound is not as hard on your body cycles can be extended up to 8 weeks in length with 6 weeks being the most common. Most users will begin to notice the effects by the third week in the form of muscle hardness/increased strength. Novice users should always stay within the general dosing amounts and not exceed 6 weeks in cycle length, although more experienced users can safely run it for 8 weeks.
Transdermal preparations have a very long half life, so once daily application of Trenazone would be ideal. The best place to apply Trenazone is the neck, particularly the lower neck above the clavicle, upper back, outer thighs, chest, and abdomen.
Results of Trenazone
Results will vary based upon the dosage, however at most dosages Trenazone will slightly assist with decreasing bodyfat, increase muscle hardness, increase muscular size, enhance recovery, and promote more intensive workouts. Its very hard to quantify results because Trenazone is often used to stack on top of other substances, but it does produce visible results if diet, training, and dosing are spot on.
Trenazone is a popular stacker, because it is non-methylated which allows users to combine it with popular methylated anabolics such as Epistane. Typically users would want to stack this compound with higher androgenic substances to provide a balanced anabolic/androgenic effect. Trenazone can be utilized during either a bulk or a cut. Below is a short list of several anabolics Trenazone is commonly stacked with:
- Methylated Compounds (Epistane, Methyl-Stenbolone, D-Plex, etc)
- Non-Methylated Compounds (Stanodrole, 1-DHEA, 11-oxo, etc)
Possible side effects of Trenazone
Side effects with Trenazone aren’t as common when used stand alone, however it can elevate blood pressure and alter lipid levels the same as any anabolic. Due to it having an affinity for the progesterone receptor gyno will be a possibility, however stacking this with a higher androgenic substance like epistane or stanodrol will help mitigate this.
With any designer steroid or pro-hormone side effects can occur and in most cases they’re avoidable by following proper on-cycle support guidelines. The following is a listing of some other possible side effects with Trenazone:
- Decreased Libido/Sexual Function
- Anxiety / Stimulated Feeling
- Slightly increased Blood Pressure
- Back Pumps (Dull pain in back after/during workouts)
